To circumvent the degenerative nature of inguinal hernias and adverse effect of suture line tension, the Lichtenstein tension-free hernioplasty began in 1984, and evolved (between 1984 and 1988) to a procedure that is now considered the gold standard of hernia repair by the American College of Surgeons. Confirmed by hundreds of publication, from sources interested in hernia surgery, rate of recurrence and postoperative chronic pain is less than 1%. When the key principles of the procedure are respected the rate of recurrence and chronic inguinodynia after the Lichtenstein tension-free hernia repair is a fraction of one percent.
